    I pulled these from a skip !!
    I think they're very old delft tiles , they're roughly 5"square and have both seen better days ,
    Obviously somebody thought they were worth keeping and glued them together at some stage .
    One has I think the image of Jesus with a maiden on her knees (wish I had that power) !!! Lol
    The other a lone figure that looks like they're listning
    To God above..
    Has anyone any idea of age or any knowledge they'd like to share on these ??
    Many thanks for looking :-)
    Just found some on the web , they were made in Rotterdam in the 1780s !!!
    The tile in pic 2 I think is called the woman of cannan (Mathew xv.22)
    How cool !!

      From a church? Stations of the cross possibly?
